The men’s rights podcast host of “Fresh & Fit,” Myron Gaines, emotionally revealed that the show had been removed from YouTube’s partner program.
According to Insider, the removal effectively ended its ad revenue on the platform.
Co-hosted by Gaines and dating expert Walter Weekes, “Fresh & Fit” delves into topics surrounding “females, fitness, and finances.”
The show gained attention for its controversial content, often labeled as misogynistic.
It aligns with the online “manosphere,” which includes creators like Andrew Tate and Pearl.
Gaines’ emotional moment came while discussing his journey, from leaving his job to start the podcast to the bond he’s formed with listeners.
He had to pause and step away, seemingly overwhelmed.
“Fresh & Fit” Is A Major Platform For Gaines
The podcast was a platform for Gaines to promote his book, “Why Women Deserve Less.” According to the book, modern feminism disadvantages men.
Fresh & Fit’s episodes often feature Gaines and Weekes critiquing and objectifying female guests.
Notably, the show recently hosted Nick Fuentes, a white supremacist.
During a recent live stream, Gaines informed his audience about the podcast’s uncertain future, expressing his shock at YouTube’s decision.
The removal from the partner program means he loses monetization features, including the Super Chat donation option.
Gaines speculated that YouTube demonetized Fresh & Fit because his content is “uncomfortable” and “not politically correct.”
YouTube typically refrains from providing detailed explanations for such actions, often pointing to violations of its terms of service.
Hoping to sustain the podcast, Gaines urged followers to support “Fresh & Fit” on Rumble with a $5 monthly subscription.
He clarified that his concern wasn’t financial but rather the potential loss of their platform and reach.
Despite the setback, Gaines and Weekes will continue on Rumble and keep uploading content on YouTube.
“Fresh & Fit” currently boasts 1.4 million YouTube subscribers and 242,000 Rumble followers.

They were so disrespectful to dark skinned black women. We reap what we sow.
